Ok, there is an option AUTO-LOAD in the menu of this player. What does this option do?? Becuase the unit acts the same if it's on or off. I would really LOVE this thing NOT to load when it's powered on, since I always want to hit my folders first to see what I want to watch. This must be a bug...because the whole idea behind a megachanger is to be able to browse through titles and then pick one....specially when you turn on the unit this would be probably the highest probability of going to folder/browse mode, but Sony still insists on having it load a DVD even with AUTO-LOAD off?? If there's a firmware fix for this...please pass it on!
Other then that, I think the player works real nice. It's my first megachanger and I've always had high-quality single disc units, but just got tired of having DVD's all over the place. I have 180 DVD's now...so I have a little while to go for now. Picture quality is real nice, loading speeds are pretty good, ease of use is nice and it's pretty intuitive for a new person also. Since I have a very good programmable remote control, I've been using that instead of the native remote control. I use the MX-700 Universal Remote, which was probably one of the best purchases I've ever made! It's connected to my 52" Toshiba DLP TV and looks great. Slowly filling it up....

Its a real pain because you always have to wait before you can go directly to the FOLDER function or push any function. What I did was set up a macro when I power on, I let it go in to play mode and then I programed the macro to wait 15 seconds then go to the FOLDER button and by the time I switch over I have the folder open and waiting for me to pick a movie. I don't know what Sony was thinking when they programed it to play a DVD when you power up!!
Hope this helps anyone
